battlegrounds today tell an obama victory story. democratic strategist steve el mendorf, kerry's deputy campaign manager in '04. how are you? >> good, how are you. >> tell me about why your guy won the debates and lost the election and what that says potentially about this dynamic and this race right now is this. >> i think any challenger has a benefit when they get up on the stage against the president of the united states. the debates level the playing field. they put you on the stage in an equal footing. i think mitt romney comes into the debate with an advantage because of that. i think the question in this race, all campaigns are different and i think in this race, this is very much of a choice election. i think people see very different visions for the future between these two candidates and my guess is, when we get out of the debates they are going to continue to see the two visions and right now they're picking barack obama's vision. i think in 2004, it was more of a referendum on bush and i think ultimately people decided that the referendum they wanteded to stay with the incumbent. i t
official and "morning joe" economic analyst steve ratner and nbc news chief affairs correspondent and host of "andrea mitchell reports." >> we have affairs. >> andrea mitchell. and in washington, for "the politico playbook," executive executor jim vandehei. of course, willie, we've got a lot to talk about. let's start really quickly with the refs! >> they're back. >> we've got some breaking news. i've got to tell you, little kay, she's very excited because she's 9 years old. she plays in the soccer league. and the parents have had to ref over the past couple weeks because those guys have gone off to the nfl, but it's taken care of now. >> that's great news. >> drilled down deep. >> a few hours ago, the nfl and referees union announced they have reached a tentative agreement that will end the lockout and bring the original -- the regular officiating crews back to the field. and it starts tonight. quick turnaround. the ravens host the browns in a thursday night game. the deal good through the 2019 season features an increase in average salary for officials. they'll go up to $205,000 a year b
issues. maybe he can clarify the truth for us coming up on wednesday night. i'm joined tonight by steve benen, msnbc contributor and writer for the maddow blog. he keeps track of mitt romney's lies in a series call mitt mendacity. great to have you with us tonight, steve. romney's own pollster said last month, we're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers. so why is romney's debate strategy to fact check the president? i find it interesting. >> that's a good question. i was thinking, on the way over here, how i haven't been in college for a long time, but i remember being a freshman and taking psych 101 and remember learning about something when people identify their most glaring faults and project those faults on to the other people. i'm think this is a great example of that. because mitt romney has demonstrated over the course of several months as one of the most dishonest i've ever seen. so for him to turn around and say he wants to look forward to using the debates to somehow suggest the president has been dishonest, i think that's a classic example of projection.
competence. that's part of the bigger narrative the romney campaign has to drive. >> steve, there has been at least according to the politico argument a disagreement within the campaign whether libya is off topic or they should stick to the economic message. polls have shown movement towards mitt romney on foreign policy. to the larger question, does this go to competence? >> i think every day the romney campaign is talking about something other than the economy is probably a bad day for them. i think it's a sign of their desperation they have to make politics out of what was a terrible tragedy. and i think the obama administration has a lot of good things on foreign policy to talk about. he's president of the united states. i think, you know, the situation was unfortunately and all the information sometimes doesn't come out as timely as people would like because it's the fog of war. but i think people have great confidence in barack obama's abilities on foreign policy and how he's managed difficult situations overseas. >> john, as mitt romney has said president obama didn't level with ame
for the house and the senate? >> well, i think we have a real opportunity to take the house back. steve israel's leadership, the drive for 25, we have phenomenal candidates all over the country, and we have a real opportunity with president obama winning and doing well in the battleground states for his coattails to be strong, but this is a grassroots campaign up and down the ticket. that's what's going to be key to our success, running a strong grassroots, people to people, neighbor to neighbor campaign versus the avalanche of special interest resources that are funding republican campaigns through super essentially having a handful of billionaires trying to buy the white house and the congress for republicans. that's the contrast we'll be presenting. >> that wasn't brief enough but i forgive you. congresswoman, debbie wasserman schultz, thank you so much for joining us. >> stay with us. much more ahead on this national voter registration day. it's important. stay with us. bob... oh, hey alex. just picking up some, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to
extremism since the tea party revolution of 2010? michele bachmann, joe walsh, steve king, allen west. oh, democrats think, wouldn't it be loverly? with me now, jim graves, running against michele bachmann. and nina malika henderson. stay with us. we're going to show you how we created her. she was our frankenstein's monster, you might say. i want you to look at this and tell me how you're going to deal with this person and defeat her. how many people in the congress of the united states do you think are anti-american? you've already suspected barack obama. is he alone? are there others? how many do you suspect of your colleagues as being anti-american? >> what i would say, what i would say is that the news media should do a penetrating expose and take a look. i wish they would. i wish the american media would take a great look at the views of the people in congress and find out, are they pro-america or anti-america? i think people would be -- would love to see an expose like that. >> well, mr. graves, i hate to admit, i shirked on that response but have not conducted a joe mccarthy-style
